About Us

The ADC Theatre is the liveliest theatre in Cambridge, presenting a vibrant programme of drama, music and comedy.

We are a department of the University of Cambridge, and are the oldest University playhouse in the country. The ADC is the centre of University drama in Cambridge, run almost entirely by students with no Faculty involvement. 

We aim to provide opportunities to experience and learn about all aspects of theatre, while presenting professional standard productions. The ADC Theatre has helped to launch the careers of many theatre luminaries, including Sir Ian McKellen, Rachel Weisz and Emma Thompson.

We also present shows by local drama groups and touring companies outside of University Term, and are proud to be at the heart of Cambridge's busy amateur dramatic scene.

During University Term, we usually present two shows a night: a mainshow at 7.45pm Tuesday to Saturday, followed by a lateshow at 11.00pm.
